Even though we enjoyed our stay and the surroundings are great, I would strongly suggest that Paddabult review the supply of sufficient and quality of especially utensils (cheap plastic utensils), as well as the supply of towels when 4 people are occupying a unit.

Warm family welcome. Cottage neat and clean. Beautiful garden for our 2 daxies to run and play. Home away from home. Will definitely recommend this place, and will definitely go back. It is really one of the best pet friendly places we've ever stayed at.

The cottages are situated in the wine lands which was stunning. There are also excellent wine farms close by. The cottage itself was neat & tidy, perfect for an overnight stay or even longer. Friendly reception upon arrival.

Perfectly located a stones throw away from great wine farms. Set on a beautiful farm with breathtaking views of vineyards and mountains. A very well run establishment. Resident friendly dogs will wander around to say hi. Sheltered patio area, so you're protected if it rains.

We enjoyed our stay and all was up to good standard. The location was perfect a mere 3mins. from the wedding we were attending. Janene was extremely helpful and friendly. The views beautiful, would be nice to have a couple of those lemons from the orchards put in the rooms for guests perfect for a G&T.

Fabulous - great establishment and friendly staff. There is a bit of a mosquito problem but nothing that sprays and lotion can't solve. Lovely area and easy to travel to and from Wineyards in the area are stunning too
